I recently posted the first of a two-part series on the UX of User Stories at andersramsay.com. User Stories are a natural entry point for a UX designer into the Agile universe. The journey that a User Story travels in its lifecycle from conception to release has numerous points of overlap with the work of a UX designer. Furthermore, the thinking behind how stories work is highly revealing of Agile thinking in general, so becoming adept at using them in your practice will be well worth the effort.
In this blog post, I mix a discussion of the nuts and bolts of how User Stories work with ideas for how UX methods and ideas can make them even more powerful. The blog post is also a great preview of topics I’ll be covering relating to User Stories in my forthcoming book.
